Pflueger Supreme QRS Fly Reel: Winner of the "Best Fly Reel" category, the Pflueger Supreme QRS (quick release spool) is fully machined and features a polycarbonate cassette spool system for easy fly line changes. I've used cassette reels in the distant past and liked them because they are less bulky and cheaper than traditional spare spools. These cassettes lock-in securely thanks to Pflueger's advanced locking system, and each reel is capable of handling up to 4 line weights thanks to dual cassette sizes. The three reel sizes can handle 2/3 4/5; 5/6 7/8; and 9/10 11/12 lines. Price: $149.95
